Met the love of my life during the Eyes of this show.. ah, she was sooooo beautiful.. Of course; she left me after Jerry died, but lots of things changed when that happened. Nice recording, makes me happy/sad.
Subject: What's with this mix?
Don't worry I'll listen to it, fans, but Hornsby's way up in the mix as if I'm listening to his monitor mix. It improves as it goes but Picasso's ridiculous. Bruce Hornsby and his Grateful Deads. The sound just sin't that great. And there are plenty of glitches so I'm dockin' it plenty sad to say. Doesn't mean I wouldn't download its ass!
Subject: 5 star show, bad tape!
This show is why I went and this recording kills me. The sound is great it just skips in the middle of one of the best Jerry moments ever. Guitar night!! Even the weak spots on the list ripped. Jerry was on fire and as loose as I've heard, he was having a lot of fun with Bruce that night. I was having fun standing 10 feet from the two of them. Jerrys work coming out of space into, by far the best Watchtower ever and then a better Black Peter from hell!!! Ruined by a skip in(of course a guitar solo) Watchtower and a few other glitches. If anyone has a clean copy of this second set, please let me know.
Subject: 4 stars
Highlights: Smokin' Sugaree which features Jerry on slide for his last solo, as well as solo slots for both Welnick and Hornsby. Out of the blue Jerry decides he also "Don't Mind Dyin'" on Walkin' Blues, and sings along. Candyman ebbs and flows like only the Dead could do, along with a little variation on the Shotgun line, in which Jerry interjects a bit of doubt with a "I'd probably blow you straight to hell", instead of the standard "I'd blow you straight to hell". Memphis Blues is strong with those Garcia lead lines just pulling the song higher and higher, only to be brought back to earth by Hornsby's Squeeze-Box (which I never did care for). Let it Grow is just beautiful how far out it gets without being forced, and how quickly it gets pulled right back. Second set is very enjoyable. Foolish is the standout pre-drums. Black Peter & Sugar Mags are the post Drums standout.
This recording is very good, with lots of Phil coming through, and everyone else is very audible and clear. However, if youare considering dl'ing, there are a couples glitches and channel drop outs during mainly the second set.
Subject: A ripper
This show has a somewhat blah setlist (with the exception of *High Time*) but is a front to back screamer, just check out the end of Picasso Moon. Night 3 has the bomb setlist but this one was my fav, maybe it was the d**gs. Sugar Mag whups serious butt!!
